Slade House occupies a rural setting, facing south surrounded by open countryside and enjoying panoramic views to all sides, and particularly to the rear over Nidderdale. Situated west of Harrogate, north of the A59 off the Blubberhouses to Greenhow road, this is the epitome of country living. However the enticing country setting belies its convenience with the extensive facilities of Harrogate being some 15 minutes drive. The location is also within commuting distance of Skipton, Leeds and Bradford.

With traditional double fronted styling and an attached range of stone outbuildings with considerable potential for associated use, the farmhouse itself is grade II listed dating probably from the early/mid 1700's and retains many original features as one would expect of a property that has not been sold in the open market for over 150 year, perhaps even somewhat longer. The house currently extends to some 2443 sq ft 227 sq m comprising 5 bedrooms and 4 reception rooms within the opportunity to modernise to suite personal choice and extension into the adjoining range buildings subject to obtaining appropriate consents.
The holding extends overall to some 9.71 acres (3.93 hectares), being predominantly grassland to both the north and south, as defined on plan with T marks to define boundary responsibilities. In addition to the attached range of stone outbuildings, there is a modern steel framed general purpose agricultural building 105 x 30 ft overall ideally suited for amenity purposes and having electricity and water connections. It is an outstanding country property in a fabulous setting and with the opportunity to modernise, improve and/or extend.

Mains electricity is installed, private water. Private drainage.

The tenure of the property is understood to be freehold with vacant possession upon completion.

Wayleaves, Easements and Rights of Way
The property is sold subject to all Rights of Way, public and private, which may affect the property. There is a public footpath that passes through the holding.
The property may be viewed strictly by arrangement with the agents.

From the A61/A59 roundabout on the north side of Harrogate proceed west towards Skipton, past RAF Menwith Hill, turn right onto Meagill Lane to the T junction. Turn right onto Greenhow Hill Road and the entrance to the property is off a small layby on the right hand side after 0.4 miles as indicated by our for sale board.
